Calendar Challenge


This year we are running a couple of ongoing challenges to keep you nice and busy.  One is a monthly challenge that runs for the year and the other is weekly and you can dip in and out of it as you like which will start in February.
Calendar Challenge
By popular demand we are bringing back the calendar challenge but we are doing it slightly differently from before.  This time it will be a monthly challenge posted on the first Sunday of the month and you will have two weeks to post your entry.   I’m sorry I know we are late with the January calendar challenge but now we’ve started we’ll be able to catch up so that the Feb one will be posted on time. The DT are all playing along and we will be posting their calendars at the start of each month.
What kind of calendar can you make?
You can pick what size you want to work with and one of the following
You can either do one calendar with 12 pages (so January page the 1st week, February page the 2nd week etc..).  Each page to be the same size to create a calendar that can be bound at the end of the year.
You can make 12 different calendars with a full year of calendar tabs on each – these do make a great gift/stocking filler for your loved ones come Christmas time.  If you do decide to do this here is a PDF calendar you can print and chop up    2016 calendar
Weekly Challenge
On the weeks when the calendar challenge is not posted there will be a weekly challenge based on a topic that the DT have been working to.  You can make a card, Tag or scrapbook or journal page or anything that takes you fancy for this one.
What you can win
There will be a weekly random draw for a chance to win a £10 voucher whether it is a calendar week or DT theme challenge week.  There'll be other candy and codes available from time to time for everyone who is playing along
At the end of the year (for the calendar challenge only)  the DT, Jane and I will choose one overall winner (amongst those who have played with us every month and completed their calendar/s) who will win a £25 voucher.
Instructions for posting your entry and the criteria for the first challenge will be up on this coming Sunday
 If you have any questions, please leave a comment below (make sure you come and check the answer as we will post answers in the comments too for everyone to see).
If you don't have a blog, you can still enter the challenges. Just email us the picture of your page/calendar every week and we’ll enter it on the blog.
So who’s up for a challenge?

  2. I have only just caught up here, oops. Sorry.
    If I enter, it will be the weekly challenge. As the 1st Sunday has just gone, I will have a look for the next weekly one. Still a bit unsure what to do & for some reason I am not receiving email alerts for blog. Best plan is investigation. I definitely need a challenge! Tfs : )

    1. We would love you to join in with any of the challenges, anything you are not sure of please ask!
